15, 2000 School Board Meeting Agenda
President Campbell and Members of the Board:
Tuesday, November 7, 2000, in compliance with the Board's new policy for
community participation (reflected in the document entitled "How to Address
the Board of Trustees" sent out as part of the November 1, 2000 board
packet), Dona Wright delivered to Nancy Bogart, a written request and supporting
information related to a presentation to the board ASK wished to have placed on
the agenda for the November 15, 2000 school board meeting.
Wednesday, November 8, 2000, Mrs. Wright received a telephone call from Nancy
Bogart with regard to ASK's submission. In that conversation, Ms. Bogart
informed Mrs. Wright that President Campbell and Superintendent Jerry Davis had
determined that ASKís presentation would first have to go before the districtís
Advisory Board for Special Education for their approval, before it could be
presented to the school board. When Mrs. Wright informed Ms. Bogart that Linda
Jones had already indicated she would be presenting the video to the ABSE at
their next meeting, Ms. Bogart stated that the entire presentation would have to
go before the ABSE before ASK would be allowed to have this item agendized.
refer you to the new policy the Board not only discussed at the October 18, 2000
board meeting, but adopted and then circulated as part of the November 1, 2000
board packet, and again discussed at the November 1, 2000 meeting, to wit:
citizen may place an item on the Board agenda if the written request and
supporting information are received in the Superintendent's Office no later
than Tuesday noon of the week preceding a regular Board meeting."
stated above, we provided the request and supporting materials to Ms. Bogart in
accordance with the time frame stated in the policy. Therefore, we have complied
with the policy and would respectfully request that this item be agendized in
accordance with it.
